Microdosing Psychedelics Facts
Taking miniscule doses of psilocybin mushrooms, aka microdosing takes you to a good place without the other drawbacks associated with a full trip, namely spending the whole day spaced out in a deep spiritual journey. Don’t get us wrong, spiritual journeys can be very revealing and can help you alter your life trajectory in a good way, but they’re best left for weekends or your day off. If you want to feel good and keep on doing the everyday things that you need to do e.g. work, parenting- the mundane stuff- then microdosing is the way to go.
Best drugs to microdose
Common microdose: 0.01–0.3 g of dried mushrooms, 0.5-2g of truffles

You can eat it straight, in the form of shroom chocolates, or by taking capsules containing ground-up mushroom powder.

Users now have more choices than ever when it comes to taking magic mushrooms. You might want to simply eat dried magic mushrooms or even take shroom-infused products such as capsules , gummies, chocolates, or magic mushroom tea. You can find all of these products online at Psilocybin Garden

Microdosing Psychedelics Facts
Common microdose: 10–20 micrograms
Similar to psilocybin in some ways, but also very different in others. Microdosing LSD tends to increase focus and energy as opposed to psilocybin’s more curious and creative flow state.
Making a LSD microdose can be tricky. Some people try cutting up tabs but volumetric dosing is probably best. This is when you dissolve LSD in a mixture of un-chlorinated water and/or vodka before measuring your doses with a syringe or dropper.
Common microdose: 0.1-3mg
It may not be the most obvious choice of drug from microdosing but low doses of THC can have useful effects like an increase in focus, creativity and verbal recall.
There isn’t much research on this, but low doses of THC have been shown to reduce cravings and pain.
Simply taking a puff on a joint or vape, or eating a low-dose edible, will give you a THC microdose that won’t make your eyes red or affect your short-term memory. Be careful to start slow so you don’t get more stoned than you intended.
Common microdose: 0.5–1.0 mg
Known as the spirit molecule, DMT is a potent hallucinogenic that can take people on other-worldly trips. When microdosed, however, DMT can give users a sense of calm confidence and optimism.
DMT can be vaporised, smoked in a pipe, or snorted.
You’re More Focused When You Microdose
In another study on Psychedelic microdosing benefits and challenges 278 microdosers reported on their various experiences with LSD and psilocybin. The research sought to know whether microdosing had helped them improve certain aspects of their lives such as mood, meditative practices, exercise, diet and sleeping habits. It found that almost 15 % of respondents reported having better focus and concentration. They also demonstrated more conscious awareness, engagement and attentiveness, as well as mindfulness.
